Attend the Green Codes Breakfast Summit and conference education sessions to learn the latest on green building codes.

Green building professionals and advocates for green codes will find at Greenbuild Boston the industry updates they need.

Earlier this year, the collaborating organizations of USGBC, AIA, ASHRAE, ICC and IES announced updated plans for promoting a unified green building code that could become the foundation for LEED certification. The next version of the International Green Construction Code (2018-IgCC) will be published and ready for use early next year. This iteration will be the first version to integrate ASHRAE Standard 189.1 and the IgCC into a single model code (dubbed "the IgCC powered by 189.1").

Attend the Green Codes Breakfast Summit at Greenbuild with representatives from the organizations working to scale up green codes. Hear updates on upcoming connections in LEED to the IgCC, learn about new tools that help simplify the search for green products and engage in a lively discussion about how we accelerate the transformation of our built environment.

When: Wed., November 8, 7–9 a.m.
Where: Room 102B, Boston Convention and Exhibition Center
